When it comes to models, you really know your stuff!
The entries to our Ford Mustang model contest, celebrating 50 years of the legendary car, were quite incredible. We’re sure you had as much fun building and painting these models as we did seeing them posted to our Facebook page!
Here’s a note from contest judge, local mechanic and modeler, Joe Gamble:
“I'd like to thank all of the contestants, your entries were works of art. The attention to detail was overwhelming and made it very difficult to decide on a winner. The techniques used in the painting and assembly was great. As a mechanic by day (modeler by night), I enjoyed the detail of the engines, interior and body paint work, everyone captured the look and feel of the Mustang.
“In saying that, I'd like to congratulate the winners of the 50th Anniversary of the Ford Mustang model building contest!
“Very well done everyone! I hope to see your next project!”
Okay, drum roll please….
